Successful Failures

In my life, I have been a part of failures. 3 companies I have founded have not succeeded for various reasons. As far as I can tell, only 1 of these companies died because the business model didn’t support it. The others involved partners, life issues and a variety of outside influences that could not be controlled. I don’t make excuses for, nor hide, these failures. The amount of knowledge I have gained as a result of seeing a business fail is incredibly more insightful then when a business succeeds. I’m a natural risk-taker and entrepreneur by nature – but failure always hurts, so it’s best to at least learn from it. This is as cliché a statement as I care to make in my life, however, one that should always be passed on; Don’t hide your failures – learn from them and show people you’ve learned. Just a thought.
